2006: Gil Cedillo supports illegal immigration boycott, shills for cheap labor employers - 09/18/11

... the "Great American Boycott" immigration march. The speech was discussed here five years ago, but since it appears to have been deleted from its original location at democrats.sen.ca.gov I uploaded my cached copy. 1. On the video, Cedillo supports comprehensive immigration reform and compares legalizing illegal aliens to ending slavery, giving women the right to vote, and ending Japanese...

Harry Reid: "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform"; vile Durbin confused about citizenship - 04/11/10

Yesterday, yet more marches in support of massive illegal immigration were held across the U.S., with U.S. Sens. Harry Reid appearing at the event in Las Vegas and Dick Durbin at the one in Chicago. At the one in Vegas, Reid said (link): "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform." One of the things I worry about is that he just might be right. The possible...

NumbersUSA harassed at immigration march by far-left, open borders fascists - 03/22/10

... attended yesterday's pro-illegal immigration march, and you can watch the reception he received on the video at peekURL.com/v41a4yc which is also attached right or below. On the video, persons dressed as mimes surrounded him as he attempted to speak to the camera and blew whistles at him in an attempt to shut him up. Not only that, but from their posting about the day's events (link): After...

March for America: illegal immigration rally, March 21, 2010 Washington DC - 02/12/10

... 2010, yet another pro-illegal immigration march will be held in Washington DC, this sponsored ultimately by the far-left National Council of Churches [1]. The next day they'll apparently be conducting a lobbying effort, sending attendees to speak to their representatives (presumably illegal aliens will take a pass on that event). The march is associated with Ecumenical Advocacy Days, a mini-...

Mike Kingsbury /SEIU offers bad economics, bad logic (legalization as a "wage floor") - 05/04/09

... saying this about the recent immigration marches: Why we as citizens don't do this more often, I don't know. I do know that putting a floor under the most vulnerable workers in this country will help maintain a standard of living for all of us. And this year's May Day theme emphasizing America's immigrant history - immigrant roots, immigrant rights -- couldn't have been more on target. 1. The...

2009 immigration marches get tea party-level turnout (actually even less) - 05/01/09

The 2009 marches in support of illegal immigration are getting a turn-out roughly equivalent to that of the tea parties or less. For the high side of figures, turn to the Fair Immigration Reform Movement at fairimmigration.wordpress.com * Chicago: "estimated five to seven thousand" (FIRM); this says "only about 2,000"; UPDATE 2: the Preston link says "about 5000". * Boston: "upwards of 400" (...

Illegal immigration marches: May 1, 2008 - 05/01/08

This year's marches for "immigrant rights" - i.e., to give rights to illegal aliens to which they aren't entitled - were much less attended and made much less of an impact than those in 2006. There's a round-up of reports here and a round-up of the marches in various cities here. Barack Obama threw his support behind the marches; as discussed at that link one of the key organizers of several...

Barack Obama statement supports illegal immigration marches - 05/01/08

... supporting the May Day illegal immigration marches [1]. He misleads by failing to note that the marches are designed to benefit those who are here illegally rather than legal immigrants. He's also apparently proud of having spoken at the May 1, 2006 event in Chicago; the main organizers of that event have links to the Mexican government with one even being an official with a foreign political...

Is Barack Obama a Muslim who practices Islam and who attended a madrassa? - 01/27/08

Is Barack Obama a Muslim who practices Islam and who attended a madrassa (madrasa) in Indonesia? Despite whatever emails you might have received, it appears that the answer to that is no. According to him, he's a "committed Christian" (link). His church is the Trinity United Church of Christ, whose pastor has made some rather questionable statements. However, according to this: An investigation...

June 24: illegal immigration rally at Hollywood and Vine - 05/08/07

... planning yet another illegal immigration march, this time for June 24 at the famous corner of Hollywood and Vine: "All of us here today are united in expressing in the clearest voice possible that our community will not be intimidated into inaction... The struggle for democratic rights and democratic immigration reform will continue."

The Wit And Wisdom of Illegal Immigration Marchers - 05/01/07

No, the pages aren't blank, but something else is. In all these reports, the listed quotes and all the rest are presented completely unopposed. No one is around to point out to them some extremely basic facts: a) they weren't kidnapped and brought here against their will, b) they're already citizens, just not of this country, c) they're welcome to leave at any time, and d) U.S. citizenship is a...

Enrique Morones, Nativo Lopez on "Migrant March II" - 02/02/07

From this: Dozens of immigrant-rights advocates will depart today from San Diego to drum up support for immigration reform. Called Migrant March II [aka "Second National March for Immigrant Rights"], the caravan of mostly Latino leaders will drive to Brownsville, Texas, and back, meeting along the way with community leaders and residents in cities along the border, organizers said. Exactly...

Mayday/May 1, 2007: another illegal immigration boycott - 01/07/07

Mark it on your calendars, because illegal aliens and their supporters will supposedly be holding yet another mass walkout/boycott/march on May 1 of this year. And, there's supposedly going to be a planning meeting on February 3 and 4 at Loyola Marymount Law School in Los Angeles. The specific target of the boycott is Walmart. The only organizer mentioned is Javier Rodriguez from the "Coalicion...

Darryl Fears: the Democratic line on immigration - 11/20/06

Darryl Fears of the Washington Post offers "Republicans Lost Ground With Latinos In Midterms". As might be expected, it's so full of misleading statements, superficial analysis, hidden agendas, and hidden assumptions that a full treatment would be novel-length: ...Latinos [gave] the GOP only 30 percent of their vote as strident House immigration legislation inspired by Republicans and tough-...

ICIRR in suit against Terry Goddard over Western Union wire transfers - 10/19/06

The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights ("ICIRR") is "sponsoring" a class action lawsuit against Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard over that state's program that tries to stop human smuggling by seizing Western Union wire transfers that meet certain criteria. ICIRR is "sponsoring" three nobody plaintiffs - at least one of whom is a legal resident - who had money seized and...

Video: Gil Cedillo compares immigration reform to ending slavery and more - 09/09/06

... complain. He also brings up the illegal immigration marchers and their "American flags". Of course, most of the flags were originally Mexican until they realized that was bad PR. Likewise with Cedillo, who some years ago said we should give driver's licenses to illegal aliens because "they were here first". Nowadays he says it's for "public safety". Some have even been more transparent. Sorry,...

Washington DC illegal immigration march: <5000 show up; Ted Kennedy - 09/08/06

Senator Edward M. Kennedy ("Teddy", "Ted") was one of the featured speakers at yesterday's illegal immigration rally in Washington D.C. It was supposed to be a big deal, with up to 500,000 people expected. Instead, according to the WaPo, less than 5,000 people showed up. The Senator's remarks, as prepared for delivery, are here. Nowhere in those remarks does he explicitly admit that what he's...

Tainted National Alliance for Immigrant Rights to march on Labor Day - 08/16/06

... Rights is organizing pro-illegal immigration marches for Labor Day in, among others, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Dallas, and New York. That's according to one of their spokespersons, Nativo Lopez of the Hermandad Mexicana Nacional. And, as the first link points out, one of the leaders of the NAIR is an official with Mexico's PRD Party. So, who's linked to these extremists and Fifth...

Karl Rove's pro-illegal immigration extended network - 07/15/06

Let's take a look at Karl Rove's new friends, the National Council of The Race ("La Raza") and who they're working with. The group Defend Colorado New tried to pass Proposition 55 (similar to Arizona's Prop. 200 or CA's Prop. 187), but in June they were thwarted by a possibily activist CO Supreme Court. On the other side is the deceptively-named Keep Colorado Safe. Their front people include...

May Day pictures; mini-riot in Vista - 05/02/06

There are pictures of the illegal immigration march in Sacramento here, with photos from various other marches here. Here are some videos from Escondido. Don't be fooled: we'll still have Taco Bell. And, there was a mini-riot in Vista near San Diego. From the other side, there are L.A. pictures here: dailykos.com/story/2006/5/2/125337/4719. The author of that diary is a true useful idiot. UPDATE...

California State Senate supports foreign citizens marching in our streets - 04/27/06

In a shocking - but not surprising - move, the California State Senate has endorsed the May 1 illegal immigration boycott and march: SCR113. This isn't suprising considering that many California legislators frequently act more like their Mexican counterparts. It's only shocking that they would be so bold and that the resolution would be so utterly dishonest. The full text of SCR 113 is included...

Illegal immigration supporters split over May 1 boycott - 04/20/06

Rachel Swarns of the New York Times informs us in "Immigrant Groups Plan Campaign to Bring Legal Changes" that: 1. There's a split among illegal immigration supporters. Some groups continue to support the "Great American Boycott of 2006", while others, including those in the "National Capital Immigration Coalition", oppose the boycott. 2. The illegal immigration-supporting groups plan to "...

Think Progress, Ezra Klein, AP downplay organizers of illegal immigration marches - 04/13/06

... organizers of the recent illegal immigration marches in this one sentence post. That links to this brief Ezra Klein post, which links to the AP article "Groups Help Organize Immigration Rallies" (link). Since for some reason or another my attempts to comment on the TP post keep getting blocked - and since Ezra Klein for some reason is afraid to enable comments on his entries, herewith the...

Georgia illegal aliens protest organized by former Mexican consul - 03/24/06

... between the organizers of other immigration marches and foreign forces, including the Mexican government, Mexico's PRD Party (the one to which AMLO belongs), and the Irish government. In fact, all three major Mexican political parties were involved in various of the Chicago illegal immigration marches. The ACLU, MALDEF, SPLC, and AFSC have indirect links to the Mexican government. And, here are...

More pro-illegal immigration propaganda from the Washington Post - 03/22/06

Darryl Fears of the WaPo offers "Immigration Debate Heats Up": Pro-immigrant activists are planning an April 10 protest in 10 cities that could pull tens of thousands of immigrant workers from their jobs. A coalition of groups including the AFL CIO, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, Catholic bishops, the Day Without an Immigrant coalition in Philadelphia and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of...

Illegal aliens march in Chicago, get support from Blago, Gutierrez, local media - 03/10/06

Up to a few hundred thousand illegal aliens and their supporters marched for immigration "reform" in Chicago earlier today. Among those supporters are the local news media and politicians. The news media took the opportunity to send out their ethnically-biased reporters who offer some rather non-journalistic propaganda. First up, Rafael Romo of CBS 2 Chicago offers highly biased coverage in "...
